The senior class play, "Good Night Ladies," will be presented at the Luana hall on April 28 at eight o'clock. Here is the plot in brief: The Raleigh youngsters, Helen, Jane and Sam, have inherited an old house near the campus of Gray son College, but it is mortgaged and they are on the point of losing -|t. As a last resort, the girls have decided to use the old house for a dormitory, hoping that the revenue from it will take care of expenses. Aunt Barbara and Aunt Flora Stevens are willing to come to act as matrons for the dormitory which the youngsters have planned. A postponement of the aunts' arrival brings about a crisis; for Miss Eggleby, dean of women, threatens to spoil the dormitory plan when she refuses to allow any girls to occupy the dormitory until the proper supervision has been put into effect. Students begin to arrive, but the dean immediately commands them to go elsewhere. In order, therefore, to save the project, a bold scheme is hatched. We can't ruin the play for you by telling you all. Come and enjoy the side-splitting complications. Larry Dobson. a- student who works for the telegraph company on the side, says he will fake a telegram stating that the aunts have changed their plans and will arrive within a few hours—provided, of course, some plan can be worked out to dupe the dean until the aunts actually arrive. Into the mesh of deceit come various new students and—very important, indeed—Professor Dexter. The professor is not fooled for long, but being a first-rate chap, and still cherishing fond memories of Flora, one of the aunts, from the time they dissected frogs together in class, he keeps the secret dark. He does more than that. Much more. Eventually he is named head of the college by the board— and just in time; for the dean finds out the awful truth about the hoax and is on the point of expelling all concerned when she finds that the professor has taken things pretty much into his own charitable hands. Don't miss this hilarious comedy! Honor Roll.

MERLE STEE CASTALIA, IOWA Start your seed properly if you want a good vegetable garden, advised Ed Cott, Iowa State College horticulturist. Nothing is more important than planting at proper depth, he says. A rule-of-thumb is to bury seeds to the depth of five times their diameter. For carrots, radishes and tomatoes that means H inch. For beets and squash one inch is best, and for peas, beans and corn IVJ inches. Thinning of such vegetables as carrots, beets, parsnips and lettuce is another point to remember. After the seedling is up above ground art one or two Inches It is timt gin the thinning operation, and beets should be left „ three. Inches apart, parsnip,; three Inches, and lettuce j| eight inches. Follow these two hints will have vegetables of nioif form size, your yield will Wi and the crop, will store better, NAP.
